plan "b." i think we all know that every income tax filer in america is going to pay higher rates come january 1st until congress acts. so i believe it's important that we protect as many american taxpayers as we can. and our plan "b," would protect the american taxpayers who make $1 million or less and have all of their current rates extended. i continue to have hope that we can reach a broader agreement with the white house. that would reduce spending as well as have revenues on the table. i think it would be better for our country. but at this point, having a backup plan to make sure that few american taxpayers are affected by this increase as possible, moving down that path, is the right course of action for us. >> good morning, first i'd like to say that i think all of our hearts and prayers are with the families in newtown, connecticut. as a father, i cannot even imagine the utter horror that those families are going through right now, grieving the loss of their children and their loved ones. as far as the fiscal cliff is concerned, as the speaker has said, we remain committed to

and if the unions don't answer that call with new ideas and a new program, america will be a right to work nation by the time hillary rodham clinton completes her second term. i particularly like that last part. what actually happened politically on the ground in the failure of that constitutional amendment. what did the argument look like there? >> well, the union decided they wanted to put this on the ballot because the right to work discussion kept bubbling up. they wanted to put an end to it. what they did instead of just saying let's not deal with right to work, let's do that and they wanted to repeal a lunch bunch of other laws too. a lot of people felt it was after overreach. even democratic party officials say privately that perhaps they bit off too much with the proposal and as a result as soon as it failed so badly, right to work came up again. >> were democrats united behind that proposition though? i mean democratic leadership and not voters. >> absolutely. absolutely. a ton of money was spent to try to get it pass and defeat it. it got defeated and the unions said a lot of people, ev
